In this hilarious, unpredictable mystery-doc, Ben Sisto digs deep into the origins of the Baha Men’s 2000 global-smash track “Who Let the Dogs Out,” coming away with legitimately surprising findings and more than a few crushed dreams. A wild, roundabout story that’s equally about the origins smash hit as it is the often-disgusting machinations of the music industry, Who Let the Dogs Out is a super-entertaining tale of missed connections, forgotten groups, and personal aspiration. “Dogs”-superfan and comedian Sisto is our loving guide to one of music’s biggest mysteries—one you had no idea existed.
